Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-08
Agency: Department of Education
For the 36-month projects funded in fiscal year (FY) 2011 under the Training and Advisory ServicesEquity Assistance Centers (EACs) program, the Secretary waives the requirements that generally prohibit project period extensions involving the obligation of additional Federal funds. The Secretary also extends the project period of these grants for up to an additional 24 months. This enables the 10 current grantees under the EACs program to continue to receive Federal funding annually for project periods through FY 2015 and possibly through FY 2016. Further, the waiver and extension of the project period mean that we will not announce a new competition or make new awards in FY 2014.
